33 cl. bottle sampled @ post-GBF 2013 train drink. Split by 3. Obtained from Hopduvel. Great label & name. Nose is indeed quite hoppy mixed with toffee, chocolate, mocha, hint pine, caramel, light biscuit. Taste is sweet chocolate, chocolate milk & milk chocolate, hoppy, light grapefruit, inkling pine, caramel, toffee, thick malts, brown sugar,… Easy to drink, fine carb. Really nice brew.

mkel07 (4028) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique August 2013. One of the most flavour packed bees I have ever had. There is so much going on in this beer it is hard to keep track. Lots of spiced fruit and alcohol.

elbernays (791) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 31, 2013
Tangerine orange aroma. Lovely stuff. Pours dark brown with foam head that stays to the end. Sweet caramel, heavy body and noxious verging on the obnoxious it’s so filling. Low carbonation. Little alcohol taste despite high abv. Liked this one.

DanielBrown (4057) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Excellent. Pours a beautiful ruddy brown, with crested fluff thatch. Flavour is deep and sweet. Smooth, constant mouthfeel, packed with Belgian yeast sugars, molasses and warming qualities. Is it the best Quad - I doubt it. Is it a brilliant beer - sure is.

caesar (5642) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2014
Bottled, BB date stuck beneath a sticker on the cap, but it was bought somewhere sept 2013, large sample. Clear copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma of loads of biscuity malt, caramel, raisin, but also some fruity notes like orange and grapefruit. Hint of fusel alcohol, not that much spicy notes. Quite sweet in taste, slight bitter, some alcohol. Sirupy. Like a fusion between an american barley wine and a belgian quadrupel. Lots of sugary sweetness, but a great sipper.

Grzesiek79 (3412) - Radom, POLAND - APR 3, 2014
Silny aromat kandyzowanego cukru. Toffi. Troche, a nawet sporo zelkow haribo i gumy balonowej. Mam wrazenie ze piwo jest przesadnie przeslodzone i to doslownie. Brak mu ulozonego smaku, wytrawnosci i winnosci quadrupli, a do Westvleterena czy St Bernardus mu bardzo daleko. Malo nut suszonych owocow. Za to jest nadmiernie slodkie i alkoholowe. Moze lata w piwniczce zrobily by mu lepiej. Wyglad ladny brunatny ciemny i metny kolor ciemno brazowa piana i artystyczna prowokacyjna etykieta.

Alengrin (2991) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2014
Quadrupel with an attractive label if you like animals... Sticky, light beige, thin but stable head over a hazy deep bronze beer. Seductive aroma of fresh orange, chocolate sauce, red wine, raisins, cocoa powder, pear, butterscotch, leather and banana. Sweet onset, very fruity, banana, pear and plums, sourish citrus peel refreshment, deep caramelly and nutty maltiness, yeasty, chocolatey, soft and full, smooth with a complex finish of deep malt sweetness, yeasty spiciness, citrussy hop bitterness and some warming, brandy-like alcohol. Great, Belgian-inspired example of the style with American hops profile and good balance between sweet and bitter. I love this kind of beers!

Discovered this gem at BBF in 2013. Delicious blend of caramel, pine resin, toffee, orange, and other flavors.

Butelka 0.3L.Ciemno rubinowe, metne z bardzo obfita drobnopecherzykowa piana. Aromat winny, beczkowy, rodzynkowy oraz lekko karmelowy po ogrzaniu. Piana w smaku gorzka, winna, suszona sliwka, wisnia z odrobina palonosci - swietnie wyglada, swietnie smakuje i dlugo pozostaje co dziwi na tak duza zawartosc alkoholu. Podobnie same piwo z wyczuwalnym alkoholem przy wiekszych lykach. Duzo ciala, piwo slodkie z niskim wysyceniem. Bardzo dobre piwo, bogactwo smakow, wyraznie degustacyjne, warto pic malymi lykami. Przypomina likier.

4/X/14 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 17/IV/18 (2014-1175)

Little cloudy deep red to red brown beer, big creamy light beige head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: sweet, sugary malts, caramel, dried fruits, other fruits, some strawberry jam. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: sweet malts, alcohol, very sugary, syrupy, jam, more alcohol, bit sourish, bit of green banana. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, very hoppy, floral touch, sweet and sugary, strawberry jam, caramel, alcohol, grassy, bit medicinal. Would call this a barley wine, rather than a quad, is that ok?
